RANGE OF ELECTRIC CARS & PLUG-IN HYBRIDS.

ALL THE INFORMATION CONCERNING RANGE.

For an electric vehicle it is not only important to consider how fast and safely it travels, but also how far it will take you. In this consideration, the range of an electric vehicle also depends on factors such as the speed, driving style and outside temperature as well as the use of the air conditioning or seat heating. These are factors that we cannot calculate. But all the others we can. Here you can find out all about the ranges of our electric cars and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

EVERYDAY CHARGING.

Everyday charging covers charging operations in everyday activities in public areas, at home or at work. A sample scenario of everyday charging could take the following form: usually you charge your vehicle at home overnight from the Wallbox or simply from a domestic socket using alternating current (AC). This already provides you with more than enough energy for your everyday journeys, such as the route to work, the shopping trip in between and visits to restaurants after work. In these activities, you are not reliant upon public charging stations. If required, though, you will find charging facilities both on your route and in public places, where you will enjoy additional privileges such as free parking during the charging process. The mobility services of BMW Charging make searching for and using charging stations even more convenient. It guarantees that you will always reach all your daily destinations in comfort.

HIGH POWER CHARGING.

On long journeys, there will be occasions when even the fully charged battery of your electric car is not enough. This is why, in addition to the public charging stations at car parks and in inner cities, there are also high-power charging stations. These charging facilities use direct current (DC). This network of charging options is undergoing continuous expansion and is designed especially for long journeys and short stops. As they are particularly powerful, the stations provide a significantly faster charge and shorter waiting times as a result. In this way, you can charge your BMW i3s, for example, up to a level of 80% in approx. 40 minutes. And thanks to the BMW navigation system and the BMW Connected App, you can effortlessly combine your route with these charging stations and determine the best possible itinerary for an efficient journey.

FUEL CONSUMPTION AND CO2 EMISSIONS.

BMW i3 (120 Ah):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 13.1

BMW i3s (120 Ah):
Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 0
CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 0
Electric consumption in kWh/100 km (combined): 14.6–14.0

The information on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption has been determined in accordance with the prescribed measurement procedure VO (EU) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the 'New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines', which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany and on https://www.dat.de/co2

The values are already based on the new WLTP regulation and are translated back into NEDC-equivalent values in order to ensure the comparison between the vehicles. For vehicle related taxes or other duties based (at least inter alia) on CO2-emissions the CO2 values may differ to the values stated here.
